Week in Review...

With it being New Year's Eve and all, I thought it best to end the year with some pics I have yet to blog about. I figure this approach will bring me some blog closure for 2010 and I will start fresh again in 2011. I might even reinvent my blog approach. :) We'll see...anyhow here's what we had going on this last week of December.

A must on my to do list...head to Gilbert and check out the fire station.

I'm sure the question is "Why Gilbert?" Actually, our old neighbor Rebecca and her fiance' Jamie moved there before summer, and he is a firefighter. I figured kill two birds with one stone. Go check out the station AND see our friends. It was GREAT!!!

HI REBECCA!!! We missed you!!!

Checking out the trucks.


By far the best part...the slide.

Thank you firefighters for letting us crash your pad!


This morning we topped it all off, with the Jones Family's,
Noon Year's Eve party!


The 2010 Kennedy Family
(Cutter & Christian..thanks for looking!)

BYE BYE 2010...bring on 2011!!!

The 3 days of Christmas

WHEW!!! Christmas is FINALLY over for the Kennedy's!
We had 3 days of good Christmas time fun!

FIRST DAY: Dec. 24th Collin's parents' house.

Nice that within the first 30 min. we were there Christian needed his shirt in the dryer.
So much for hearing me say "stay out of the fountain"!

Present time!!!


Of course you gotta play with the goods!

Thank goodness for Aunt Mel!!!
She really saved us..well Collin...some work.

SECOND DAY: Dec. 25th Our House

My family (somehow no pic of brother) came over bright and early so we could do Christmas.

There were more presents to be opened!

Christian says..."It's a full size pillow!"
Hmmm...maybe too much TV watching for him. :)

What would he do without these?!

Thank goodness our friends' came over later to play!

Here's the Christmas toy madness!

Ashwee and Brooke playing Christian's new game.

THIRD DAY: Dec. 26th Brunch
Chris and Melinda's

The morning trampoline fun.

Christmas Tree Time...

I guess this week I know what I will be doing.

Like the saying goes...OUT WITH THE OLD...IN WITH THE NEW!!!
CHRISTMAS 2010 is one for the books!!!

Singin' the Blues Away

So still don't have my Polar Express pics out of the trash yet, so thought I would do a filler post in the meantime. This past weekend we got to do some good ol' fashioned caroling. The Stover's sure know how to do it up!

Thank goodness for the Williamson's and their wagon.

Catching up with the group to do some singing...or not.

Cutter trying to get some room in the wagon.

Oh, I think he is finally relaxed.

Christian's turn to be pulled.

Our little reindeer.

This was the best shot of the night! Somehow we managed to get a GREAT photo of some of the frat guys' who have families now. I tried to blow it up a bit, but I can't believe even the kids are looking! PURE LUCK!!!

I am LOVIN' the holiday festivities!!!

Let it Snow...Let it Snow...Let it Snow!

Thursday we took off after Cutter got out of school and we headed to Flagstaff. We were off to meet the Friedman's so we could take a trip on the Polar Express. It was the perfect way to start getting in the holiday spirit. The best part...SNOW!!!

Kids packed up and ready to go!

Whoa...check out this weather.

Christian slept through it.

Cutter had his he was content.


Christian wants a snowball fight.

He's one happy kiddo!

I loved that there was just enough snow to keep them dry. :)

NEXT STOP: The North Pole on the Polar Express.

(Uh, just as soon as I figure out how to get those pics out of the Iphoto trash.)

Caught you!

So, I come into the kitchen and this is what I find.

Me: Christian, what are you doing?
Christian: This is what Elle does for fruit snacks.

Thank you Paige for the good laugh today!!!
